Mummy is very busy with her works since last few weeks (maybe months).
A week ago, it was a very tiring night. Mummy was lying down with Topaz.
Mummy: Mummy is so tire. Why Mummy works so hard and does not get the same pay like your daddy?
Topaz: It is because you don't work hard?
Mummy: No! Mummy works very hard. Same as your daddy. It is because supply and demand!
Topaz: What is supply and demand?
Mummy: What do you want to be when you grow up?
Topaz: I want to be a police's boss.
Mummy: Police's boss? not policeman?
Topaz: Police Boss. Mummy what is supply and demand?
Mummy: Mmmm... if there are 5 people want to buy a packet of Soya bean like your mummy, daddy, mama, orion, Jeriel Kokor.. then all of us will fight for it and pay more. Mummy will pay RM1, daddy will pay RM1,50, Mama will pay RM2.00... But if there are 5 packets of soya bean but only Topaz wants to buy, then Topaz will only pay for the price asked. so who you want to be?
Topaz: I want to be a policeman!
Mummy was so annoyed: What? Policeman? do you know that policeman is just like 5 packets of soya bean but police's boss is like one packet of soya bean!! who you want to be?
Topaz: We cannot fight! we should share the packet of soya bean, Mummy....
Maybe he is right... or mummy's example is too bad.
